Hubby is doing just fine after his gallbladder removal. He should be able to return to work this week. Hallelujah!!! Our little grandson is getting stronger every day, thank God. I posted some photos of him on two blogs this weekend if you'd like to see him. What a dollbaby.

Good Afternoon everyone!!! Happy Palm Sunday also!!! The sun is shinning here even though it's still chilly. Hope the weather down there is good too.

Annie glad you're feeling better now. Stay well.

Missy how is your husband now? Hope he's much better and not in any pain.

My daughter is still in La. visiting her hubby at Ft Polk. Will take my Grandson to his scrimmage today and hope they do well.

Thank you so much. He is very sore on the side where they did the 3,000 sound wave hits but we're not sure any of the five remaining stones broke up because he's not voiding any grit this time around. Not a good sign, I don't think. I appreciate you asking about him!

I've lost some weight in the move but even with weighing in I am not able to tell how much with all the swelling I've been having since I've gotten here.

Good morning, team. It looks like it's going to be a beautiful day today. Not so cold; thank goodness!

I see some new members posting and I'd just like to say "WELCOME". We're so happy to see y'all here.

We are such a food oriented culture and to make it worse, our food is so darn good. That adds to the challenge to lose weight and eat healthier. I don't know what the answer is but I do know that the tools we need to help us along the way are here at Spark People.

I've had a few people contact me and I've seen postings here about people new to SP feeling overwhelmed by all the info on this site and not knowing where to start.

Here's a few links that will help you. There is no right or wrong way to do this; just jump in and learn all you can and use the tools that are available to you. We have to find what works for us as individuals. And we're here to help each other along the way.

Absolutely!

I never lost weight before in my entire life, and I was always afraid I never could. But I followed SparkPeople's tips, tracked EVERY food I ate, and tracked my exercises. The report feedback and the team support gave me so much motivation!

Good luck!

I understand how you feel, Mary. That's what makes SparkPeople different and effective. If we keep doing the same cycles of behavior and it isn't working, why keep doing it? The accountability of using the nutrition and fitness trackers has changed my life forever. I was well on the road to eating myself into an early grave by eating mindlessly. My relationship with food and with my own body had to change. I had to take personal responsibility for what I eat and when I move. SparkPeople arms us with all the tools we need to make permanent changes in how we deal with nutrition and fitness. There is so much encouragement and motivation here. You are in the right place, at the right time. THIS is when you recapture your health and vitality. It's YOUR day, new friend. Please don't hesitate to ask if I can help in any way.

Good morning team; how is everyone doing this morning? I'm recuperating from some sort of virus/bug that's had me down since Saturday. I was feeling a little better last night but not so great this morning. I really can't complain as I don't get sick too often any more. And the scale shows a another little loss this morning because I've not felt like eating much all weekend.
emoticon

It's 65 degrees this morning and I love it! It's been way too cold here for me! If I felt better I'd go work in my garden. Doesn't it make you feel better to be outdoors and soaking up some sunshine?

Did you know National Eating Disorders Awareness Week began yesterday? This info is from my daily SparkPeople calendar. It states "If you feel preoccupied with food, calories, and weight, then talk with your doctor to find out whether your thoughts and actions are problematic". There is more info at:
www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/

Today's calendar message reads "A ship in the harbor is safe. But that's not what ships are built for!"

This reminds me that I need to start stepping out of my comfort zone; which is very hard for me. Having a routine is sometimes very necessary but it's so easy to become complacent. It's good to challenge ourselves from time to time.

Now, let me see what I can come up with to push myself outside of my boundaries and comfort zone without getting too crazy about it!

I hope y'all have a good week!

Sounds fun on that Wii Fit Plus!!

If you click on my SparkPage and click MORE on the far right, then on my favorite recipes, I have a bunch posted there that are "normal" food. I totally understand what you mean by that, too.

Today I fed a penguin, fell off a tightrope, jogged and pedaled through an obstacle course, went skiing and snowboarding down a mountain, played soccer, and hula-hooped my butt off.

We finally found a Wii Fit Plus with balance board!

It's hilarious! And FUN!

Hope y'all have a good weekend! TGIF!

Hi there everyone! I hope you all are having a good week. Went to services yesterday with the hubby to get our ashes. For Lent I have given up all sodas. I don't plan to start drinking them after it's all over either. If I can go the long I don't need them

NanJun, as one who has a mother-in-law in an assisted living facility, I thank God for you and folks like you who do so much to make their lives sweeter. Bless you!!

I'm in Hammond, so it's quite a trek down to the bayou! We do visit from time to time, though. Next time we come down to meet DoubleDelite for lunch at Blacky's, I'll let you know and maybe you can join us!

Good morning team! Happy Mardi Gras! I've decided to skip the events and go hang out with my brother.

Here's a little thought from my daily SparkPeople calendar:

"Do less. Striving for too many goals can be stressful. The more items you focus on, the more each task suffers from a lack of priority, attention and accuracy. Whittle down your to-do list to focus on what is really important!"

I hope y'all have a good day today; whatever you have planned.

Hi, CajunMom, I just sent you a SparkMail. Soon as y'all make a SparkPage, we'll be able to leave comments and goodies for you there. It's such a great source of encouragement. Looking forward to hearing from you in SparkMail. If you click on anyone's profile image, you will see a place on the right side to send them a SparkMail. That is a private way to communicate with anyone on SparkPeople. (I hope that helps!)

It has been a good Saturday. All the snow is gone now but was so glad my little girl had fun in it. Never know when it will happen again. Hope you all had a good day. I went to the Natchitoches mardi GRAS parade this evening. Lots of fun and everyone was pleasant.

We had big, fluffy snowflakes, and lots of them, but then it would rain and dissolve the snow. That went on for several hours. Never did get enough snow to cover the ground.

Wow we got about 4 inches of snow here in Boyce. This morning we went sliding down the levee with my three year old little girl. There will be no exercise at the gym today due to bridge close. Hope everyone is having a good day

We had at least 3 inches of snow in Alexandria last night and today. It is all melting now.

It is snowing in Bush. Not sticking but it has been coming down for about an hour now. I am sooooo ready for summer.

Too many of us have been sick. I haven't been able to go to work most days this week much less get to the gym. Next week is out as well with Mardi Gras and the traveling for work I am doing.

I am just ready to get back to normal. It's all fun but not in the cold and wet.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Good morning, team. Welcome to our new members; we're so happy to see you here!

What a crazy week it's been and now we're on snow watch. No snow so far in Slidell, how about the rest of y'all?

I was so excited to attend the Superbowl parade Tuesday night. My daughter and I left Slidell at 2 PM and it took us about 4 hours to get Uptown and find a parking spot (normally a 40 minute drive) and then we walked about 1.5 miles to the end of the parade route at the Convention Center. It was an awesome experience and so exciting to be around such positive energy. It took us 2 hours to get back home and boy I was tired and achy yesterday. But so happy to be able to be a part of this historic event!

I made it to the gym 3 times last week but this week has been a bust. My daughter bought a Wii last week and the few games I've tried out I love. We've been trying to find a Wii Fit Plus with balance board but no store within a 50 mile radius has one. I haven't gained or lost a pound this week; stayed the same.

I'm so undecided about Mardi Gras. Right now I'm in a holding pattern; watching the weather. I love parades but not standing in the cold and wind.

I hope all of you are doing well and staying warm and dry. Have a great weekend!

Superbowl, parade day, sick mom, sick son, and now bad weather day? Oh and I almost forgot about Mardi Gras. Haven't been at work much lately. All the while everything is just piling up higher and higher.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE,

Well yesterday was a good day for me. When I get off today I am headed to the gym and try to get a work out in before the snow starts. I hope you all have a wonderful day today

What a beautiful parade and atmosphere last night!!
I am sparking for a change lifestyle and more consistency. I am still working on changing my eating schedule. What I eat is fine, but I need much work still on portions and frequency. Sometimes I still eat my first meal at 3 or later. This has to change.

Oh Happy Day! Our boys were blessed, I am so grateful that even through opposition and all of the nay sayers they came out victorious, they indeed finished strong and very proud.

MBEARB you are absolutely right, it takes a team to win, and that's just what happened, the TEAM did it.

You're not the only one!

The whole house cried! What a game!!!!!!

And what did the TV Announcers say???? Oh, yes, the MVP will be Peyton Manning................

This is the perfect site to say this:

It ain't over till the Fat Lady sings!

And guess what? This Fat Lady sang and cried!

GREAT JOB to ALL the players on the SAINTS team--- it is not just Drew or Peyton's game---it takes a TEAM to win!

You deserve this great day! We have stood behind you all since the beginning of time, through thick and thin! Our day has come!

LOVE YOU SAINTS!

I've been a Saints fan for 43 years and never once cried when we lost, and we lost a LOT. Tonight a dream comes true and we win the Super Bowl and I can't stop crying!!!

My yard is a soggy mess! But I'd rather deal with the rain. My son is getting slammed with snow in VA; they are expecting blizzard conditions starting at 10 PM tonight through tomorrow night and over 30 inches of snow. As you can tell, I'm not a snow lover but it sure it beautiful.

Who Dat!! TGIF, y'all!

I spent 6 hours today working in the yard, cleaning out the gardens and pulling weeds. I hardly made a dent in what needs to get done but it was so nice to be outside in the warm sunshine! Tired, achy, but happy!

Good morning, team! I'm so far behind in reading all the postings and blogs. I'm very happy to see some old faces that have rejoined us and some new faces on our team. Welcome!

It looks like a beautiful day; I think I'm going to try to do a bit of yard work today. I lost most of my plants during the extended hard freeze last month so I need to clean up the gardens and get ready to plant some new stuff in a few weeks.

I managed to get in a fishing trip to the Rigolets last week and caught my limit of 5 redfish. It was nice to get my boat back out on the water again.

I am still working on building some positive momentum as it relates to my workout routine. I made it to the gym 2 times a week for the past two weeks for an hour workout each day (45 minutes cardio and 15 minutes circuit/strength training).

This week I'll go to the gym 3 times a week and now I have a workout partner, my daughter. I've not lost any weight this week but didn't gain either so I'm OK with those results. Baby steps, baby steps, baby steps...!

I hope Punxsutawney Phil is wrong about his prediction this morning that we'll have 6 more weeks of winter. I'm ready to get out and spend more time in the outdoors. I have a new bike and am looking forward to riding around and in particular checking out the Tammany Trace: www.tammanytrace.org/

I hope y'all have a good week and I look forward to hearing from each of you. I'll leave you with a little motivational reading from www.greatday.com

The Results Will Come

Though each effort does not bring an immediate result, keep going. The results will come.

Every achievement requires many efforts. Those individual efforts combine with each other to bring the desired result.

So keep going. Keep adding one effort on top of the ones before it.

And all the while, learn. Learn what works and what does not, and adjust your efforts to become even more effective.

Keep going, keep learning, keep working and keep getting better. Every day, every effort brings you closer.

Persistence is the way you prove you really want it. Persist, and you will have it. -- Ralph Marston
